***

(Souichi's View)

According to Chie's study, a person will turn into an undead after 1 and half hour. Although Nejima is infected, we can't afford to mercy-kill a former comrade. Izayoi mentioned the mercy kill and Nejima also agreed for that. However, no one of us is willing to do it.

Its already six in the morning, which means that the Night Rage finally ended. However, the whole bank is surrounded by the dead. Exit is not good here. And Nejima's situation is not something good either. His right arm that got bitten is already tied up fully so as to prevent the virus from passing but we underestimated it and it managed to infect Nejima's right arm. It already undergoes the process of Necrosis.

"I...fell cold..." Nejima said, pale and devoid of life. His body is also emitting a foul stench which is one of the sign that his body is undergoing decay.

I stood up and removed my jacket off and put it on Nejima. I also decided to contact my sister. If Chie has developed a cure, it would be great for Nejima to survive.

"Hello?" Nanami's voice registered on the other line using the phone that she tweaked so that we can communicate properly.

"...Hey..." My voice broke and I don't know how to break the news to Nanami. Although Nanami seems oblivious, she is good friends with Nejima so saying it like nothing is not an easy feat.

"What's wrong? Did you encounter trouble?" Nanami asked.

Yes indeed. A major trouble that we have no idea how to fix. This is too hard, just like how I see in the movies, this is not something I hated to happen, its already a major thing when Mr. Leo sacrificed and died for us, now, its Nejima's turn, and it was much worse than Mr. Leo.

"Nejima... he..." I stuttered. I can't seem to say it.

"Nejima? What about him? Why are you stuttering brother?" Nanami inquired.

"I... he was bitten..." I finally said it. However, it felt heavy. Its the heaviest words I said in my whole life.

"..." The other line was quiet.

Of course, Nanami is shocked. This mission was considered as something that is not easy but to have this happen, its already expected. However, it was indeed not a good thing. Nanami once again returned in the next line.

"How is he? Does his situation looked grim?" Nanami turned serious.

"No... in fact, he is getting paler and paler. His right arm that got bitten is already undergoing necrosis," I said to her.

"...Please, let me talk to him..." Nanami said. Based from her voice, she is on the verge of tears.

"Okay..." I handed the phone to the struggling Nejima. Nejima smiled weakly and take the phone. I can hear the voice of Nanami on the phone but I don't dare to interfere so I decided to back away, however, I can still hear what they are talking about.

"Nejima..." Nanami muttered.

"Nanami... I am sorry. I don't think *cough* I can't go back to the base with you all..." Nejima said, trying to say what he wanted.

"Nejima, don't say that. Chie is making her best to develop the cure. You will be saved in no time!" Nanami consoled.

"Nah... I know I don't have a few hour to live... don't waste that for me," Nejima said and coughed up blood. I noticed that the blood that Nejima coughed out is more darker than usual. It's not the light red blood I usually see on a human. Nejima is slowly turning.

"Nejima..."

"Listen... I know its too late for me too say this... but I loved you since the day we met in Kirishima High and although I am sure that its pretty obvious that I won't have a chance... *cough*, I still need to say it. Please take care of yourself. I know that it will be hard *cough*... but I know you can do it. You are the most intelligent girl I have ever known. Ack... I... my time is running out. Still, I wish you luck, and I hope you meet the person you love the most... You don't need to answer my confession, I know I will forget it anyway, however, remember that even though I am no longer here, I am watching you wherever I am..." Nejima said and he coughed up more blood. Nejima released the phone and continued to cough badly.

"Nejima!" Nanami shouted into the other line but it was already not good for Nejima to continue speaking. Shu helped him up and I picked up the phone.

"Nejima is getting out of shape. Veins started to appear on his body. He is slowly turning..." I said to Nanami.

"No! Brother! Save him! You can't let him die! He is a precious person to me!" Nanami is already crying.

"I..." honestly, I don't know anymore. This is no longer beyond my power. Saving Nejima is beyond my means. I pressed the end call button even though Nanami is still shouting over from the other line.

Nejima's confession is timely, however, its also considered as a painful confession. I clenched my fist and shook. This isn't what survival is. This is just too much... Nanami is crying right now and I know that she doesn't cry no matter how hard a task is but if it turns out into her love ones... this is no longer a laughing matter.

Nejima's eyes is dilated and his breathing is already heavy and slow. Blood keeps on going out his mouth and the color of his body is slowly turning pale. The rotten smell that I can't explain is also getting stronger. The necrosis of Nejima's body is getting more obvious. Nejima pulls out his Glock17 and hands it to me.

"Please... kill me... before I lose my humanity..."
